Wildlike New Salon and Retailer Brings Luxury Ear Piercing to Dallas
AAnyone who’s ever taken that memorable trip to Claire’s home knows that ear piercing is a rite of passage. But recently, the eternal trend has amplified beyond a simple stud. Now it’s all about the designed ear, with multiple piercings, hoops, cuffs, and diamond studs arranged as well. Alysa Teichman – who brings a notable pedigree to retail jewelry (her parents, Joanne and Charles Teichman, have owned Ylang 23 for over 35 years) – taps into the global obsession with Wildlike, a new concept that gives piercing an artistic touch. parlor.
The striking space, located in The Shops of Highland Park, was designed by Swoon the Studio and B. Russo Designs. Think of it as a personal living room gallery filled with tiny works of art. Wildlike offers luxury jewelry brands specific to piercings (Maria Tash, Pamela Love, BVLA and Kismet by Milka) in addition to its own eponymous line. Plan your future piercings at the styling bar, then relax in the richly furnished salon before pulling the curtain back in one of Wildlike’s piercing rooms. It’s a vision fully realized – both in the studio and in the gold and diamond studs artfully arranged on your lobes.
Teichman, who continues to serve as vice president of business development for Ylang 23, was inspired to create the spinoff concept after hosting body piercing parties and events at the Preston Center store for the past five years. “It’s such an exciting space – it transcends any type of demographics. It’s not just women, it’s not just people of a certain age. They’re not just super pissed off people, ”Teichman told WWD earlier this summer of the inspiration to create Wildlike.
The plan is to bring her concept of a piercing salon, which encompasses the same expert curation of designer jewelry that Ylang 23 has long been known for, to cities across the United States. But for now, you can visit the jewel-toned destination along Oak Lawn Avenue to tell you were part of the Wildlike movement from the start.
